A native of Boulder, Colo., Olympic-distance specialist Cameron Dye makes his living by racing on the non-drafting circuit, which includes the Life Time Fitness Race to the Toyota Cup, the Rev3 Series and the 5150 Series. A former college swimmer, Dye has since built his reputation on being a strong swim-biker, typically using his crushing bike splits to lead into T2. After racing just one year as an amateur, Dye finally broke through this year to establish himself as one of the best in the professional ranks with an impressive six wins, including at Rev3 Costa Rica, the Boulder Peak 5150 and was the overall Race to the Toyota Cup winner.
